BlogPaws Wrap Up In Pictures

You may know that my mom person went to BlogPaws last week in Salt Lake City.  I thought I would show you the events through pictures.  There’s so many that this will be in 2 posts, today & tomorrow.

My mom person went to Salt Lake City a day early so that she could see the beautiful grounds and buildings of Temple Square.

The first thing she noticed when she got to her hotel is the amazing view of the mountains from her little balcony.

In Michigan and the surrounding states we don’t have mountains, so she spent a lot of time everyday out on the balcony staring at “her mountains.”

It was a nice, breezy day so she walked the 5+ blocks to Temple Square, the heart of the Mormon church.  Temple Square has the amazing Salt Lake Temple and stunning ground with every square inched landscaped beautifully.

This is the majestic Salt Lake Temple.  They don’t hold church services here, but have lots of weddings.

Visitors are not allowed to tour this building, leaving it awesome and mysterious.

Here’s some of the flowers around the grounds.

This building is called Assembly Hall and they do hold services here.

The inside does not match the outside on the beauty scale.

On her way back to the hotel from Temple Square my mom person got adventurous and decided to eat at an Asian food truck.  Food trucks are another thing we don’t have in this area, and Asian fusion food is not something my mom normally eats.

My mom person ate a pineapple-ginger pork taco.  It was delicious except for one thing, it was filled with cilantro…my mom person hates cilantro.  She was a little disappointed, but she was still happy that she ventured out of her comfort zone and tried something new.

When she got back to her hotel, things started getting revved up for BlogPaws.  Here’s Dexter from Fidose of Reality.  His mom person is Carol Bryant, but you can tell that my mom person was focused on Dexter.

This is Norman the Scooter Dog.  He put on a show along with Tillman of Tillman Skates.

She also met some pawsome blogging friends in the fur, like Pumpkin Puddy.

Now we’ll see some more of what was going on with Flat Oskar.

Here he his with the mountains as his background.

At the outdoor cafe,

with a Paul Frank pillow that my mom person wanted to steal from the Catification Lounge,

And showing his manly self awareness, by posing with this cozy pink kitty bed.  My mom person wanted to steal this too, for my kitty sisters.

After Flat Oskar checked out the swag bags stacked in the basement and ready to go, he got to sit with the actual swag bag that my mom person got to bring home.

Whew, all that action & BlogPaws haven’t even started yet.  Come back tomorrow for more highlights from you-know-who’s trip.
